Behind The Scenes

TUKI Festival - Glendhu Bay, Wanaka

What a blast! 
Thanks TUKI Festival for having us along to film + interview an outstanding line-up. From treasured personal favourites like The Phoenix Foundation + UMO to new encounters such as Aaradhna, Marlon Williams, Lips, Maala and more, TUKI festival delivered great set after great set.  We filmed a portion of each set and then interviewed the artists about their upcoming year in music, their experience of TUKI + then threw in a few curveball queries...  

The TUKI crew were welcoming + so hospitable.  Much aroha to the organisers, Lake Wanaka SouNZ.  Profits made from the festival go directly back into future events and the Wanaka community.  Since the first festival put together by the non-profit group in 1998, more than $118,000 has been put back into supporting music, youth, and the environment within the region.

It was also our son Theo's first festival - and he not only survived it like a champ, he seemed to really get into it!  And of course, last but not least, thanks to Aerial Vision for coming aboard to film and capture some drone footage! It's always great to work alongside this duo.

UMO - Unknown Mortal Orchestra were phenomenal.

Theo's first festival! That's right, our little man was there for the festivities and was a champion.

TUKI! We loved being a part of the festival - all the crew were efficient + onto it, and it felt stress free.  

Behind the Scenes - SHAPESHIFTER 'Oculus' Official Music Video

Here are some behind the scenes photos from filming the official music video for SHAPESHIFTER's new track 'Oculus'.  We teamed up with the Shapeshifter crew, drone masters Aerial Vision and three amazingly talented dancers from Identity Dance Company Ltd. and went down to Christchurch to capture some ridiculously smooth choreography in some fantastic locations. 

Keep you posted.

The Common Unity Project Aotearoa

What a fantastic project this is.  We can't wait to share what the awesome community-minded people of The Common Unity Project Aotearoa are up to with their latest undertaking.  Mark was there to capture some of their story, and where this charitable trust hopes to steer itself in the future.  More soon!

The Shop - Update


The Renegade Peach Project is putting together a shop - and our textiles + prints are coming along nicely.  Here's the first prototype of our beanie!  You'll spot us sporting these when we're out filming - and soon you can own one of these comfy warming collectables yourself.

They'll be out in black and navy - and there will be a limited run of each.

We're excited - we've got a few collaborations to unveil + will be supporting Women's Refuge New Zealand with some of our products.

If you'd like to be kept up to date with all things SHOP, please head on over to

On Location - Louis Baker "Rainbow" Official Music Video

Talk about working with a professional - Louis was on task and hitting his marks time after time with his performance for our new collaborative music video project.  Louis received NZOA funding to create a music video for his new track "Rainbow" and we were presented with the challenge to create a video that showcases Louis' powerful, honest and stripped-back delivery.  

We made our way through seven locations in and around central Wellington, Carterton, the Tora coastline and Martinborough, filmed in streaming sunlight and torrential rain, and ambled along bush walks, beaches and shingle pathways.  We're both really looking forward to putting together this video - more soon!

Location Scouting - New Music Video

We have been travelling around the Wellington, Martinborough and Carterton scouting for the right filming locations for an exciting upcoming music video project.  New Zealand - we've got to hand it to you.  What a stunner.

Behind The Unseen - Trinity Roots' "El Kaptain" Music Video


We're getting really excited about releasing our video for this hauntingly beautiful track from the wonderful Trinity Roots fellows - not long now!  We developed the video concept with the band and the hugely talented people at Body FX, and had so much fun working on this unusual video. 

We filmed the video in colour but our actors were made up in monochromatic make-up, producing a silent film era colour scale.  The props, set and costumes were also sourced and made to the monochromatic aesthetic.  Keep an eye out for mermaids...
